New York Documentary Premiere
“Killer at Large” to Premiere, Chevy Chase and Wife to be Honored
New York, NY – Tickets went on sale today for the New York premiere of the award-winning documentary “Killer at Large”. Set to take place on November 21st at the Times Center building at 6:30 pm. The film explores the startling details of the American obesity epidemic. All proceeds from the premiere will be donated to the Children’s International Obesity Foundation (CIOF). Before the film, CIOF and the Producers of “Killer at Large” will be presenting actor and comedian Chevy Chase and his wife Jayni with the "2008 Ambassador for Children’s Health Award” for their work toward ending childhood obesity.
In the film, when asked what the most pressing issue is in America today, former Surgeon General Richard Carmona responded, “Obesity, because obesity is a terror within. It is destroying our society from within and u nless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event that you can point out...”
According to the National Institutes of Health, obesity costs taxpayers $117 billion annually and is estimated to kill more than 100,000 Americans each year. With many obesity experts declaring that his may be the first generation of children to have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents, “Killer at Large” provides a sobering perspective on the most pressing health issue of our time - and serves as a call to arms for concerned parents, school districts, elected officials, health professionals, and entire communities to empower themselves in reversing this deadly trend.
“Killer at Large” features interviews and footage of numerous public figures discussing both the politics and the causes/effects of obesity including former President Bill Clinton, consumer advocate Ralph Nader, filmmaker Neil LaBute, Senator Tom Harkin, Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee and a number of bestselling authors such as Michael Pollan, Chef Ann Cooper, and Dr. Brian Wansink among many others. It will be available on DVD from the Disinformation company in early 2009.
